Miranda Kaufmann – Edinburgh International Book Festival

16th July, 2018

It’s a common misconception that black migration to Britain began with the Windrush in 1948. But as Miranda Kaufmann demonstrates in Black Tudors, many black Africans were warmly accepted into 16th century English society. What’s perhaps most striking is they were free – living in a Britain not yet involved in slave trading. Kaufmann talks to Afua Hirsch and discusses the implications for our understanding of British history.
